SubjectDickenson, Ethel, 1880-1918
Scope and Content of FondsThis portrait photograph of Ethel Dickenson is a prime example of the work of photographer Elsie Holloway (1882-1971), who founded the Holloway Studio Limited, St. John's, in 1908 and operated it until 1946. Elsie Holloway carried on the tradition of excellence established by her father, Robert E. Holloway (1850-1904), who was recognized as the pre-eminent Newfoundland photographer of his generation. Elsie's talent as a black and white portrait photographer is clearly evident in this example, with its subtle contrasts and shading, its clarity of image and its naturalness of pose. The strikingly recognizable "Holloway" signature in the lower right corner gives authenticity to the portrait, a work that Holloway was quite willing to identify as hers.
